Thank you UoL for this great course! Hope to follow up with the following courses of the specialization
This is the best among the all courses in this specialization.
This was the taught course of the whole set. The lecturer was clear and concise - the videos were relevant and the reading provided up to date and interesting. I've enjoyed this course very much
Very helpful for developing interpersonal and self-management skills in the context of international business. The interviews are very helpful in gaining insights from experienced personalities.
The material is more complex and challenging than the first course in this series, but from the perspective of one who is starting to learn about management skills, it is definitely worth it.
The course presentation was very easy to follow and relate with the presenters. I have also learnt a lot that I have immediately started applying to my work environment
Really great course! It was a nice introduction to the field of study, with a focus on the importance of communication that can be practiced in everyday workplaces.
It was eye opening and presented very well. I think the best part of the course is that Mr James is interviewing other people that have experience in the field.

How long does it take to complete the Specialisation?
The Specialisation contains five courses and the Capstone. The five MOOCs each have four modules of content, and the Capstone has five modules. You should be able to complete each module in approximately five hours of work, meaning that the Specialisation as a whole should take you 125 hours to complete. Each course has an indicative four week structure (five in the case of the Capstone) but you are welcome to complete each course at your own pace.

No specific background knowledge is necessary. However, if you are planning to take this Specialisation as an entry route to the University of London Global MBA, you will still need to have at least one of the core requirements for entry to be eligible after completing the Specialisation.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
